OK, I have had my 55 gallon going since early December. Been some tough going at times, and all is not perfect but I have had a few successes.
Several weeks ago the local Petsmart had Bosemani Rainbowfish. I had previously purchased seveal on internet and due to bad water they did not last. Anyway I got two from Petsmart.
I was in the other day and they still have a few but I was STUNNED by how the one's in my tank colors have changed, deepened darkened, etc. After about 3 weeks mine are looking pretty much like the pictures, not like the ones in the breeder tank environment.
Anyway, I was asked to bring a picture of mine in.
I have a Canon IS 2S, that was a pretty fair camera in its day, and IMHO pretty good today, as well.
However, I have never even taken a "bad" picture of my fish...only worse, worser, and worst.
Can anyone give me "foolproof" settings. There is lots to change on the camera and I have changed them all, with the same, pitiful results.
Additionally, it seems when I try to zoom in, I get about 1/2 way there and then as I zoom more, I just get blurry. Is that a function of the glass?
I have a great tripod, which I have used, and I have washed both the inside and outside of glass.
I would really appreciate some suggestions on how to get a good picture so I can show off my guys.
Thanks in advance.
